Recruitment is the process wherein players create a new Adalian Citizen. Adalian Citizens are Crewmates who were born in Adalia, rather on the Arvad (the ship that brought the original colonists to Adalia).
Initially, Crewmates may be recruited on Adalia Prime. Eventually, Crewmates may be recruited at any player-owned Habitat. When a Crewmate is first recruited, players can choose their appearance, choose one of five classes, choose from several traits, and set a unique, immutable name.
